Kate Winslet says shooting a sex scene with her good friend and "Titanic" co-star while being directed by her husband was "weird."

"I just kept saying, 'This is too ... weird,'" the actress, 32, told Entertainment Weekly, of her experience filming their upcoming movie "Revolutionary Road."

"And Leo was like, 'Oh, get over it.' And I'm going, 'Yeah, a little reminder: You're my best friend. He's my husband. This is a bit weird.'"

The director, San Mendes — her husband since 2003 — told the magazine: "I will admit it was quite bizarre to direct my wife in how to make love. But it's difficult whether you're married to a person or not."

Winslet and DiCaprio, 33 — who starred in 'Titanic' in 1997 — play a suburban couple in the film, based on Richard Yates' 1961 novel.

"I hadn't realized how much my chemistry with him since 'Titanic' would still stick," she said. "It's great to discover we can just slip right into it, like muscle memory."
